To use the Financial Accounting Study Guide/Exam Preparation Guide students preparing for an upcoming exam should first identify which particular topics they need to study. The student should then locate the chapter(s) covering these topics by searching the: Topics_LearningObjectives_Chapters1thru12.pdf file that is provided.

For each chapter a one page Exam Preparation Grid is provided to give students a quick, concise guide to help them prepare for that chapter s material in an upcoming exam. The Grid for a particular chapter lists the major and minor topics that students should focus on in that chapter.

A Practice Problem and Solution is also noted. For optimal results the student should study the Review Slides and Demo Problem and then work the Practice Problem and finally review the Practice Problem s detailed Solution. The student should also review the Key Concepts file for that chapter. The Study Guide is divided into 12 chapters which contain the typical topics covered in a college financial accounting textbook.

This study guide will also be useful to students taking Intermediate Accounting 1 who find that their financial accounting knowledge is a bit rusty and who would benefit from a quick refresher in Financial Accounting. Students interested in a more in-depth coverage of an entire chapter can study the entire set of Review Slides for that chapter and work through the entire Problem Set for that chapter.
